Following advice from Greg (?) I downloaded a new version of 1.5.0 and it 
compiled creating version: 
Scribus Version 1.5.0.svn
9 January 2010
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.8.6
Using Ghostscript version 8.70 

The gotcha is that the Export to X/1a format still doesn't work. The save 
button is blanked out when that format is selected.  According to the online 
notes that feature is complete.  X/1a is why I am fooling with 1.5.0 in the 
first place. 

All advice welcome.
